The Importance of Tags

Jeff Jarvis provides a succinct explanation of the role tags will play in the next generation of internet applications (BuzzMachine):

"The web is about connections and the value that arises from them if you enable people to collect and communicate. In the old, big, centralised, controlled world of media, a few people with a few tools -- pencils, presses and Dewey decimals -- thought they could organise the world and its content. But as it turns out, left to its own devices, the world is often better at organising itself."
